Philippine coconut farmers count cost after loss of 33 million treesListen /
Coconut farmers in the Philippines are counting the cost caused by Typhoon Haiyan which swept across the country three months ago flattening millions of trees.
The country's second largest coconut-producing region, Eastern Visayas, was one of the areas most affected.
Thirty-three million trees were damaged or destroyed there leaving more than a million coconut farmers in need of assistance.
Those farmers are now replanting trees. However, it will take between six to eight years for those trees to reach full production.
The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is supporting recovery efforts
Sandra Ferrari asked Rajendra Aryal, the acting FAO Representative in the Philippines to explain the devastation the typhoon caused.
